    A cross between a lemon and a sweet orange, Meyer lemons boast a sweeter, fuller, more perfumed flavor than their tarter cousins. Our gift set includes a Meyer lemon tree, lemon sea salt, Lemon & Citron jam and a rubber-rimmed, steel-clamped Weck jar for making your own lemon preserves. Agricultural regulations prohibit shipments to Florida and Texas. Our potted Meyer lemon tree can be grown and harvested on a patio or in a sunny kitchen. (See More Info and Use & Care tabs for further details.) The salt is made from ground, dried lemon peels blended with pure Hawaiian sea salt. Use it on vegetables or for preserving fruit from the included Meyer lemon tree. Made with locally grown, seasonal fruit, the Lemon & Citron Jam offers a sweet-tart balance ideal for pairing with fresh cheeses. It is handcrafted in the French tradition, with small batches made in traditional copper kettles. A Weck jar is the ideal receptacle for making preserved lemons. The rubber-ringed, steel-clamped glass lids create an air-tight seal. Salt and jam are made by Lemon Bird, a California-based company specializing in artisanal preserves. Jar is made in Germany.
